Draft National Ethics Standards for Health and Disability Research

24 July 2018

The Draft National Ethics Standards for Health and Disability Research: Consultation document sets out the established ethical standards that apply to all health and disability research in New Zealand.

The standards are mostly targeted at individual researchers but they are also useful to ethics committees, research sponsors and for training and educating researchers.

NEAC has reviewed the draft standards and now seeks the views and feedback of the public.

The consultation period has been extended until until 5 pm, 28 September 2018.
